I have a storyboard running a Point3DAnimation with a duration in Helix3D but it does not make any differance in the length of duration it always play the same speed (very fast). Do I need to set more in the Timelines or anything else?
 Dim Last_Point As Point3D = New Point3D(0, 0, 0)
        Dim Next_Point As Point3D = New Point3D(0, 0, 10)
Dim Test As SphereVisual3D = New SphereVisual3D()
        Test.Radius = 5
        Test.Center = New Point3D(0, 0, 0)
        Test.Fill = Brushes.Red
        Test.PhiDiv = 20
        Test.ThetaDiv = 20
        Test.Material = MaterialHelper.CreateMaterial(Brushes.Transparent, Brushes.White, Brushes.Gray, 0.5, 20)

 Move_Points.From = Last_Point
            Move_Points.To = Next_Point
            Move_Points.AutoReverse = False
            Move_Points.Duration = TimeSpan.FromSeconds(10)

            Storyboard.SetTarget(Move_Points, Test)
            Storyboard.SetTargetProperty(Move_Points, New PropertyPath(SphereVisual3D.CenterProperty))
			'Loop to next point

I would like to load an array points with there own duration as full storyboard but WPF is very new & differant. So I am very green to this & I am still having to use VB code. Maybe one step at a time.

This is my eyes should play for 10 seconds & move "Test" in Z axis 10 units. It move 10 units in Z axis but at light speed. I tried everything I can find (At least what can understand).
Thanks in advance

What I have tried:

I have tried setting ratio & tried to set the duration on the storyboard (Readonly dead end). I also added a label update to slow it down. Which worked but was irregular result (Not the correct way but was desperant) as it was just tying thing up & was intermitant. I can't over the thought this a storyboard error but I may be wrong

The following shows how to set the Duration to five seconds in code.

myDoubleAnimation.Duration = new Duration(TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5));

Thanks. This solved the Time issue but the problem materailised as next move not waiting for the finish of the first/last move. I solved it with a DoEvent (or as sub dispatcher) which I think is using memory but works. The problem I have now is moving the Sphere was a test but I need to move a Modelvisual3D which was made up of a geometrymodel3D

Before I started with animation I used this to move it point to point but I can't work the code out for animation as it is for 2 differant thing.

What I used to do:-
Rev_Model_Tool1.Transform = New TranslateTransform3D(X, Y, Z)
Rev_Tool1.Content = Rev_Model_Tool1

And the DoEnvent I used to stall the next move
Do Until Move.GetCurrentTime.TotalMilliseconds >= TimeSpan.FromMilliseconds(Sim_Line_Time).TotalMilliseconds


Public Sub DoEvents()
Dim frame As New DispatcherFrame()
Dispatcher.CurrentDispatcher.BeginInvoke(DispatcherPriority.Background, New DispatcherOperationCallback(AddressOf ExitFrame), frame)
End Sub

Can you give me any guide or direction (there is lots of rotaion example but nothing like this)?
